Description

Left Side heads up an obvious crack system -- refer to the picture on the web site. It starts on the left side of the rock, moves slightly right, and then heads up the center. Can't get lost.

I'd say this has a crux or two in the 5.8 range, while the rest is easier. The pro is excellent; the climbing is varied. It's also a good, long pitch.

With the new bolted anchors -- both visible from the road --you can easily rap with two ropes.

Protection

Standard rack up to #2 Camalot, stoppers. 1st 4 sizes of Tricams helpful. Bolted anchors.

An OK route with good gear, but so many ledges that you'd frequently be facing an ankle buster if you fell. Luckily, the moves are pretty moderate. There are some sections that might be significantly harder for short folks. May 12, 2009

The route is just to the right of a new bolted route. The bolted route, however, doesn't get close to the trad line. Aug 21, 2003
